Synopsis: The origin of Scottish clans and their distinctive dress is wrapped in controversy. Yet their story can be traced back to the middle of the 5th century-and to Ireland, where the Scots then lived. This authoritative, elegantly composed guide covers more than 140 clans. Organized alphabetically, the entries include information on each clan's location and history, nomenclature, and renowned clansmen, as well as the clan's current status and development.
The Scots' ancient sense of kinship is colorfully expressed through their distinctive tartans-beautifully conveyed with full-color illustrations throughout the book, and complemented by detailed information on the color, pattern, and set of each clan. Furthermore, Scottish Clans and Tartans offers the reader breathtaking photographs of the Scottish landscape, fascinating illustrations and photos of important monuments and events, and black-and-white portraits of historically significant clansmen.
The story of Scotland's clans and tartans is one of irresistible appeal, interwoven with a history of drama, intrigue, bravery, violence, and romance. (6 x 10 1/2, 192 pages, color and b&w illustrations)
Neil Grant has written more than fifty books on historical subjects. He lives in Scotland.
